Property description

Enjoy the all-season comfort and convenience of this 1300 sq.ft. split-level house that's just a 5-minute walk from town. Situated in one of the friendliest neighborhoods of Camden, it features a spacious back deck and a yard with plenty of room for badminton, croquet, whiffleball, or a cookout. Enjoy the incredible beauty of this part of the Maine coast, much of it within walking or biking distance. Stroll to town for groceries, great coffee and bagels, a show at the Camden Opera House, a trip to the Library, or an evening walk around the Harbor. Bring or rent bikes and head out on the bike path to lovely Rockport Harbor or picturesque Beauchamp Point. In the winter, take a short drive to the nearby Snow Bowl or cross-country ski on the extensive network of local trails. The roomy entryway of this furnished home features a washer and dryer and shelves for storage. You'll go down a short flight of stairs to the three bedrooms and renovated full bath. Two of the bedrooms have full-size beds and one a twin. Each room has a closet and a dresser or shelves for clothes, and one of the bedrooms has a desk. Upstairs is the kitchen and one large sunny open room, divided into sitting/TV, dining, and living room areas. There is also a desk and an upright piano. Out the back sliding door is the deck, complete with chairs, a bench and comfy mattress, shaded by an awning in the summer. There are plenty of books and games handy for vacation reading and fun. High-speed internet, basic cable and local access phone are also included. The house is small enough to stay easily warm in the winter and airy enough to be cool in the summer. A clothesline and large drying rack are available to help conserve electricity. Use this comfortable house as a launching pad for your Midcoast adventures, or just tuck in for a quiet stretch of rejuvenation.

Other Amenities

  • Although there is no air conditioning unit, we run a dehumidifier in the downstairs hallway, outside the bedrooms, that keeps the bedrooms cool and dry during the summer. The upstairs is generally very comfortable due to cross-ventilation and the proximity to the harbor.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a traveling musician and teacher, and lived on the coast of Maine for 18 years. I now spend most of the year in the Midwest but return to Maine whenever I can. I am very happy to be able to share this home with travelers who appreciate having a taste of quiet and friendly coastal town living.

Why the Owner Chose Camden, Camden, ME, USA:
I loved this house and neighborhood the as soon as I saw it. Wonderful neighbors and just minutes from one of the most beautiful harbors and network of hiking trails anywhere. The yard was the largest on the street, and perfect for games of badminton, whiffleball and croquet. Being able to walk and bike to town means a lot to me, and I needed room for my family to spread out as well. It has been the perfect combination of space and energy-efficiency.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With a cathedral ceiling and a view out the sliding doors to the elevated deck and back yard, there's a lovely feeling of light and space in the upstairs of this house, with its hardwood floor and open-plan layout. The downstairs has three carpeted cozy bedrooms, where one can tuck in for some privacy and quiet time.
